‘Black Lightening’ First Look
The CW has released the first look at their DC drama, “Black Lightening,” and I’m totally here for it!
Cress Williams stars as Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightening.
Nafessa Williams, China Anne McClain and Christine Adams also star in the superhero drama produced by Greg Berlanti, Salim Akil and Mara Brock Akil.
Here’s the official scoop on the show:
Jefferson Pierce is a man wrestling with a secret. Nine years ago, Pierce was gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, which he used to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. However, after too many nights with his life and his family on the line, he left his Super Hero days behind.
Almost a decade later, Pierce’s crime-fighting days are long behind him…or so he thought. But with crime and corruption spreading like wildfire, Black Lightning returns — to save not only his family, but also the soul of his community.
